Veolia dumps its sponsorship of photography exhibition!

Veolia ends sponsorship of photography exhibition

General Waste Management Business
16 November 2012

Veolia Environnement has announced it will not be renewing its sponsorship of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition and Exhibition ending its four-year-long association with the scheme.

The exhibition is owned jointly by BBC Worldwide and The Natural History Museum and receives some 48,000 entries from around 98 countries.

Veolia Environmental Services chief executive Estelle Brachlianoff, said: “It has been rewarding to see the competition grow over the course of our sponsorship and to support the exhibition and tour which have enabled so many people to see the wonderful photography that highlights the fragile nature of the world around us.

“However after four successful years we feel that we have taken this partnership as far as we can and that it is time to review our sponsorship commitments as our brand continues to grow and evolve. We are confident that the competition and exhibition will continue to capture the minds of nature lovers across the world.”

Dump Veolia as sponsor of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition

By JfJfP
October 20, 2012

Why this is important

The Natural History Museum’s inspiring Photographer of the Year exhibition is marred by its choice of sponsor Veolia, which provides services to the Israeli occupation by linking many illegal Israeli settlements to Israel via road and rail; and by dumping Israeli and settlement waste in the West Bank. This amounts to complicity in Israel’s grave breaches of the 4th Geneva Convention which forbids the establishment of settlements in occupied territory.

Veolia prides itself on the activities of all its constituent national companies, indeed on being a single entity worldwide, and on its social responsibility, high ethical standards and concern to act within the law. It repeats these claims time and again on its website. But it is far from being an ethical sponsor.

So we regard it as entirely inappropriate that the NHM should allow its flagship Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition to be sponsored by Veolia.

Sign our petition asking the NHM to find another sponsor! The deadline is 3rd March when the London exhibition ends.

You can find further information about the activities of Veolia in the occupied territories and the legal arguments in “Veolia – a case to answer” here

This petition has been started by Jews for Justice for Palestinians, a network of Jews who are British or live in Britain, practising and secular, Zionist and not. We oppose Israeli policies that undermine the livelihoods, human, civil and political rights of the Palestinian people. You can find out more about us if you press ‘About’ in the bar at the top.


To be delivered to:

The Natural History Museum, London, UK
As admirers of your inspiring Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibitions we call on you to seek another sponsor and break links with Veolia because of that company’s “grave misconduct” in linking Israel to its illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories and its complicity in Israel’s breaches of international law.

To SIGN THE PETITION, go to Action Alert in the left-hand column of this page, or click here.

Thank you.
